South 16th Street between "A" and "F" streets closed this week for reconstruction. Driveways and alleys in the construction area also are closed during the project, which is tentatively scheduled for completion by August 2017.
Southbound traffic on South 16th Street is being detoured east on "G" Street to South 17th Street, then south to "A" Street. Traffic on South 17th Street is now two-way from "G" to "A" streets, with a center, two-way left-turn lane. A temporary roundabout has been installed at the intersection of South 17th and "A" streets to accommodate the two-way traffic. Parking is restricted on both sides of South 17th Street between "A" and "B" streets and on the west side of South 17th from "B" to "G" streets. Parking is also restricted on both sides of "A" Street between South 16th and South 17th streets and on both sides of "G" Street, between South 16th and South 17th streets.
The Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public's patience during construction. For more information about the project, visit lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: projects) or contact one of the following:
